A few days ago, we reported that Slavko Kalezić was taking part in this year’s season of The X Factor UK. Yesterday evening, ITV aired a brand new television advert to promote the upcoming season for the first time. Guess who was the star of the advert? Indeed, it was Eurovision’s very own Slavko!
The advert aired during the final of popular reality show Love Island and Twitter was immediately going crazy upon seeing Slavko on British TV screens once again!
Why is Slavko on an advert for The X Factor?! IS SLAVKO GOING TO BE ON THE X FACTOR?!???????

Some couldn’t believe their eyes!
Indeed, some people just couldn’t believe their eyes! Therefore, we re-shared our previous article regarding the exciting news just to reassure people that this was really happening…
During tonight's #LoveIsland, #XFactor UK launched their advert, starring @slavko_kalezic, ahead of the new season! https://t.co/2NrvjFjYX5

Slavko got in on the action too!
Of course, The X Factor organisers ensure that contestants don’t give too much away when it comes to how they are doing in the early stages of the competition, prior to those stages being aired on TV. Nevertheless, Slavko couldn’t resist a cheeky reaction to the Twitter frenzy surrounding his TV advert!

Could this be a positive sign for Slavko’s chances?
Some even speculated that this level of attention for Slavko from ITV may mean they want to keep him around in the competition for a while! It would make sense. Why waste such an important advert on someone who is going to be eliminated in the first round?
Later this week, ITV will film the Six Chair Challenge at London’s Wembley Arena. Assuming Slavko has made it this far, we wish him the best of luck!
So, did you catch the advert on ITV last night? In addition, do you think Slavko has what it takes to win The X Factor? Make sure to let us know in the comments below!
